Global Wildlife: Zebra Scrapbook Layout

I didn't get to scrapbook yesterday on National Scrapbook Day. I popped online for a little while to see what everyone was doing, but I had a tee ball game in the morning. I also had to teach the kids' class in church on Saturday night. I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but I volunteer in the special needs class at Church of the King. Jordan loves that I teach her class, and I find it fun to spend extra time with her.

Today was very low key. We slept in, then I cut Ronnie's hair while the kids played outside. When we came in, I decided to rearrange some furniture because I'm still trying to get things ready for homeschool in the Fall. I went through our books and made some room on our bookshelf for new stuff.

Once I had all of that finished, I sat down to scrapbook while the kids played with their Playdoh. I knew I'd pay for it later with little chunks of Playdoh all over the floor, but the quiet was completely worth it. I managed to finish this page about a visit we made to Global Wildlife.

My Mom and my niece, Alexis came over to visit while Ronnie and my Lexie went to see a NASCAR race in Talladega, Alabama. The littler kids were sad that they couldn't go too, so we took them to Global Wildlife to make it all up to them. It was our first time there and the animals were hilarious. One of the deer yanked Alexis' cup out of her hand and ate all of the food. Poor peanut!

I used a sketch by Becky Fleck from PageMaps to create this page. I flipped the sketch horizontally and changed the photo size since I don't have many tiny photos. I need to remember to zoom out with my camera every now and then. Most of my supplies came from an older Scraptastic Club kit called "Alphabet Soup for Boys". The only additions that I made to the kit are some Studio Calico printables that they offered as a free download yesterday on iNSBD.

Here's a view of another cluster. I swear, these embellishments couldn't be more adorable. I love my Mind's Eye chipboard. It's so easy to work with and the adhesive is really high quality. I never have to add extra!

I hope your weekend went well. Tell me, what did you do for iNSBD?
